As far as VL turbo's go the majority choose to stick to an auto transmission so it was good to see Nigel's giving his manaul box some stick at Calder Park. The VL Commodore is powered by a D'Annello Performance Nissan RB25/30 twin cam turbo six combination that makes big power on pump fuel. Nigel was testing a new 2-step / flat shift setup and the Holden certainly showed promise going 10.04 at 140mph and 113mph to mid track.
Mazda RX3 13B rotary turbo - Promaz Automotive
Ross' immaculate Mazda RX3 runs into the 9s for the first time. The new car
is powered by a Promaz Automotive 13B bridgeport rotary engine and aided by
a Garrett turbo and MicroTech EFI. Ross
has fitted an Albins gearset to the Mazda RX-7 gearbox. The RX3 was only
on low Boost this time out so expect
the guys to run a lot quicker yet.

Formula One V6 turbo: 2014 Rules Explained
Transforming Formula One: 2014 Rules Explained: CGI Clip
A new clip from Red Bull sees Daniel Ricciardo and Sebastian Vettel explain
the 2014 Formula One regulations -- which are arguably the most complex the
sport has ever seen.
At the start, thousands of car parts simultaneously assemble around Dan to
form the RB10.
As Dan races to catch up Seb in his RB9, the World Champion's car becomes
transparent while travelling at full speed. The film then presents a visual
sequence that shows the 2014 regulation changes taking shape and coming to
life, as Seb's car transforms into an RB10.
As well as providing information on the new technical changes for 2014, the
clip also presents a unique view of the technology at work inside this
year's Formula One cars.

Holden V8 Rear Main Seal Installation.mp4
Plenty of theories about how to best install a rope rear main oil seal in
the Holden V8 block from the HJ model years through to the last ones
produced in the VT Commodores. We've found this to be the most fool proof
procedure. A bit long winded perhaps, but if you do it this way your rear
main seal will not leak.

Nissan Project 370Z vs 1970 Datsun 240Z with RB26 Track Battle! - The Downshift Episode 54
Many months ago, Nissan asked their fans to help them create the ultimate
370Z track car. They called it Project 370Z. To put it to the test, Nissan
fans were asked to vote for a challenger to compete against it. They chose
a 1970 Datsun 240Z with an RB26 engine transplant built by Gordon MacSwain.
On this episode of The Downshift, we head to Las Vegas Motor Speedway for
an epic David vs Goliath battle between these two amazing machines.
